Tiny white bumps/scabs
My mare has these tiny tiny little white bumps/scabs on her lower legs on all four legs. Its not mud fever or rain rot and it I can pick them off and have been taking the loose ones off but there are so many and I don't want to start picking when that can lead to an infection if I get too much.
I have been hosing her legs more than the usual to soften the area up but I just have no idea what these are. I read it may just be dry skin? The BM is a little confused. In all her years she has never seen this before. We are having a vet out but I thought I would ask on here to get any ideas on what it is and possible treatments if it is something as simple as dry skin.
No changes but I did start to use Sore No More - that has stoped and hasn't been applied for over a week. So maybe it is a reaction to that? I had never used it before and the bumps started to show when I started to use it but that could just be by chance.
I will try to get pictures but she is so dark it may be hard to see in pictures but I'll try anyway.
I figure post on here and hopfully someone will have experiance with this.
